I probably don't need to tell you much about this particular entry into the gift guide. If you have kids, you've likely already heard of Furby Boom!, and even if you don't, I'm sure you're familiar with the original Furbys. Little Boo has wanted a Furby since two of his friends got them for Christmas last year. He is pretty excited to know that P&G and Duracell are sending one our way to adopt into our own home! It hasn't arrived yet for us to do a full review, but I want to get this post up because I have a giveaway to include for your own holiday gifting!
This new generation of Furbys comes in a range of new and colourful designs, plus a greater variety of personalities. Every Furby starts out with the same outlook on life, and will develop its particular personality in response to how you treat it. This Furby will even remember its own name.
Of course, Furbys need a lot of energy to go on these great adventures and have dance parties with you. For a reliable source of long-lasting energy, look to Duracell Quantum batteries. (Furby runs on 4 AAs.) The Duracell Quantum Hi-Density Core stores more power boosters to provide longer lasting performance than ever before, and Duracell's Duralock technology locks in power for up to 10 years in storage, so you can safely stock up. I love that Duracell has "PowerCheck" right on the cell for accurate reading of remaining power. No more guessing which battery is dead!
Important note for parents! Furbys have been known to give a bit of a scare when they suddenly speak up. (But look how cute they are! They can be forgiven.) Here are some ways to quiet your active Furby, direct from the Hasbro FAQs:
Similar to previous Furbys, Furby Boom does not have an on/off switch. To make Furby fall asleep, try the following:
★ Pull tail for 10 seconds
★ Place Furby on its back for 15 seconds
★ Place Furby in quiet room and do not play with it.
★ Remove the batteries.
Furby Boom! is recommended for ages 6 and up, with an MSRP of $74.99. These make great gifts for girls and younger boys. Little Boo can't wait to welcome his new Furby friend!
And now, for you. Hasbro and P&G have provided a Furby Boom! prize for one of my readers, Duracell batteries included! Approximate value of the prize is $80. Entries are via the Rafflecopter widget below and will be accepted until 12:00 midnight EST, December 5. Giveaway is open to Canadian residents only, excluding Quebec. Best of luck!
